Who: Chester Barklight, Arche Klein
Where: Chesedonia
When: When they get to Chesedonia.
Warnings: Nada.

"You. Me. Shop. Now."

That's how it all started this day.

Things have definitely been awkward; after all, coming to Chesedonia was more or less a last minute decision, and Chester wasn't able to fully give his undivided attention to Arche ever since she woke up. Not to mention that the image of Rhea's spirit leaving Arche's body still more or less haunted his immediate memory.

But she was only acting like her chipper self. Which most definitely meant that she was still confused. Seriously, how was it supposed to go? By the way, our friend, Rhea? Yeah, she's dead and used your body for a while. That's why you lost like more than a week of your memory. Chester was fairly certain that wouldn't go too well. For one, Arche liked her body (not that there was much to like about it), and two, Rhea was one of Arche's best friends.

Picking up an apple, he noticed the stamp on it meant it was from Engeve. How was it over there? Not that he or Arche were welcome there as of that moment.

It seemed like everything served as a reminder that there wasn't a place for Arche... or him. And that frustrated him, especially since it was marginally his fault. If only she didn't set the damn forest on fire... "You want an apple?"

If she didn't set the damn forest on fire, we wouldn't have a starting point to their story, would we? 8|

To say Arche wasn't herself was true. And she knew it. But things have been so busy, and there was so much more to be worrying about that Arche felt it had been better if she just didn't bring anything up that could make things any worse. She still felt really awkward around Chester, ever since that talk they'd had when she woke up, and, though she did a good job of covering things up, she knew that her strange behavior hadn't gone unnoticed. And not just by Chester.

So, all things considered, the fact that he wanted her to go with him to the shops this morning? Total surprise. She would've been totally content to laze around in bed all day ... and mope for a bit, maybe, but nope. He wanted out. And he wanted her to go out, too. So she didn't put up much of an argument and just went with him.

His voice broke her thoughts, and she looked up just in time to catch what he was saying. She saw the apple in his hand, and, admittedly, was a bit hungry.

"You paying?" She responded.

Luckily, the smudge was bad enough, and Arche was hungry enough not to notice where the apple came from. She gave him a bit of a smile as she caught it.

"Thanks," She said before biting into it, her eyes wandering as they passed every shop, some of the garments of clothing catching her eye.

When Chester asked if she wanted any new clothes, though, she thought something seemed a bit weird. He was being really, uncharacteristically nice.

... but who was she not to take advantage of such kindness?


"Again, you paying?" She asked, after swallowing a mouthful of apple.

"5,000? Eh, seems reasonable enough. Wow, you might just be leaning how to treat a girl!" There's that feigned chipperness again. Arche smiled at Chester, her apple in both hands as she walked beside him. She let one hand off of the apple long enough to wave his comment off and started looking.

"Yeah, yeah, I'll wear it," she responded idly, sighing in mock irritation as her eyes focused more on the shops than the guy next to her.

She really didn't like too much of what she saw, to be honest. But if he was offering, she'd find something.

Her eyes fell on an assortment of jewlery, and she stared longingly at what seemed like forever at a ring somewhere to the top right of the display. It seemed like the only thing she was really interested in, but a ring like that?

Far too expensive.

She took another bite of her apple and kept staring, though. Man, if she could just try it on ...

you're right, 'foreshadow' is. :)

Arche gave a visible sigh and turned away. Resist all temptation. Seriously.

"Yeah, yeah. Whatever. So, any reason why you're being so nice to me all of a sudden? I mean, as far as I know, you don't even like shopping, and yet you've all but dragged me out here. Then you offer me food, and offered to buy me some clothes ... just what's your deal? It's like you feel guilty over something and you're trying to make it up to me." Arche began walking again, trying to keep her mind off of that ring she wanted and looking elsewhere. The stuff here wasn't so great, really.

Okay, that display was even more suspicious.

But Arche really was serious. She stopped, crossed her arms over her chest, and stared at Chester.

"Chester? As you've said. We've known each other nearly forever. So, yeah, I'd like to think I know you by now. And I know you well enough to see suspicious behavior when I see it!"

And unlucky for Chester, Arche really wasn't one to just let things go. Otherwise? It would've ended right there.

"Look, if you really are just being really oddly nice and there's nothing to say, then fine, whatever! But if there's something that I should know, spit it out already, okay?!"

He's hiding something. I know he is.

But while Arche wasn't the type to give up, she knew she wasn't getting anywhere with this. Damn it all .. she was confused, tired of the shit, and just wanted some answers. Was that really so hard?

And obviously, demanding answers like this wasn't helping. So what did she do when something wasn't working out?

She got away from the problem. If only temporarily. So, she shot a glare at Chester.

"Don't bother with it," She said coldly before turning away and running. Still within the city, and still able to get back to the hotel, of course, but she just needed to get away from him.
